Post One Photo Per Day

Big Typi came back the following year. He looked old and worn out. Ribs and pelvis bones were showing a bit. I took these pics during the latter stages of the rut, so that may have been a factor. Some of these bucks really wear themselves out rutting. His rack had gotten smaller, but still a great buck.

Those golden guys are bad ass! I have seen them take down an antelope two different times in WY. I got to watch from the beginning to the end...not pretty. They are just beautiful but deadly.
A number of years ago I watched a Golden pound a running doe, on the Monroe Mountain in Utah, multiple times on the neck. It would hit her, then circle back up and slam back into her again, over and over. The last I saw was them they were still at it, heading around the side of a hill.

Another time on the Pahvant Mt, I was glassing a group of deer on a steep rocky cliff area. Seemingly out of no where a Golden dove into the middle of them, flushing them down and thought the rocky cliffs. I figured it was attempting to cause one to break a leg or fall off into the canyon.

It’s surprising how often you encounter amazing interaction between animal species, when you spend enough time in the back country. It’s been the love of my life. Always like a box of chocolates………

We get them and baldies through here pretty regularly. They eat the prairie dogs. Between them, owls, and the yotes, its hard to keep a cat around here.

This guy landed in the tree in the backyard. The immature ones have white diamonds on their wings. They still have EASY 6’ wingspans. Badass for sure.

One of the craziest things you see with these big flocks of turkeys we have is when they flush like a covey of quail. Makes a hell of a racket and can kick up some BIG dust clouds.

Anyway, it’s hard to get a picture of and I still haven't. I did get the chance to catch them flying through a couple of deer pics. It might not look very impressive but it’s damn hard to do. :)

My one and only hunting post from this year (I go through my camera roll in pretty much chronological order). It was a rough year with me witnessing 3 animals wounded and only one recovered.

This young fellow with his foot shot off looked pretty rough for a while, but looked much better when I saw him here for the last time At Thanksgiving . And the dude shooting directly at the pickup on the road blocking for him is just :rolleyes:

Friend came back the following year. Giant. Double D shed early (Dec) that year, and I missed him. He didn't come back the following year, and neither did Friend. In fact, I haven't seen many deer in the area they hung out in since. Kinda picture heavy; making up for missing a bunch of days this winter. Plus he's a way cool buck.
